California Drivers License and Out-of-state Violations

California DMV Points

california licenseUnfortunately for California residents, if you get a traffic ticket in another state, the California DMV will count that ticket on your record here in California. The DMV will put points on your California driver record for traffic convictions that you receive in other states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and Canada. Under Vehicle Code Section 13363, the DMV determines whether the same violation, if committed in California, would be assessed negligent operator point count or would be grounds for suspension or revocation. Points resulting from Out­ of­ State convictions may form the basis, or part of the basis, for a DMV action against you.

Collision from Out of State

If a California driver has a collision out-of-state, it may be reported to the department through the Problem Driver Pointer System (PDPS), National Driver Register or out-of-state law enforcement agencies. These collisions are entered on individual records and report the date and location of the collision. When there is not enough information to determine responsibility, these collisions are not assigned points. Therefore, no action is imposed, except if the driver license is suspended or on DMV probation and the collision occurs during a suspension when there is evidence of driving while suspended. When these reports are reviewed and it is determined that the driver was responsible, had been drinking, was injured, etc. the report is then updated onto the driver’s record and, if the driver was responsible, the Out of State collision adds one point to the record.
